Dementia Friendly Guernsey wants to encourage as many people as possible to take a local dementia awareness course and the GSPCA have had two sessions over the last month.

Businesses and individuals can sign up to the 1-2 hour course to help identify and support people living with dementia. At the end of the course you are given a green badge to wear, a window sticker to display in your place of work and posters and leaflets to spread the word.

The sessions last month took place at the GSPCA with over 20 staff and volunteers taking part with one of Dementia Friendly Guernsey’s volunteer trainers.

The GSPCA help and work with all levels of the community and the training provided by Dementia Friendly Guernsey was extremely beneficial to the team who all listened intently to the advice on how we can support and identify the those living with dementia.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We would like to thank Anita from Dementia Friendly Guernsey for coming in last month to help provide training to the GSPCA staff and volunteers over two sessions to help identify and support those living with dementia.”

“24 hours a day 7 days a week we are working with the public from all walks of life and we all at the GSPCA strive to provide the best service we can and we really appreciate when we can work alongside other charities to exchange knowledge and training to help the Guernsey community.”

“All of the GSPCA team that took part in the Dementia Friendly Guernsey training enjoyed and appreciated the time they took to come and speak to us about those with the challenges that any of us could face.”

“Dementia Friendly Guernsey have upcoming training sessions and it is well worth going along to find out more with details on their website.”

“Even animals can suffer with similar symptoms of dementia and no matter if it’s a beloved pet or a member of family we must all do what we can to support those we love and care for and the community as a whole.”
